    This was then when I experienced probably the most hilarious moment ever in this game so far. My lorry was stuck, I couldn't move it. I decided on tactics and unhooked my trailer, and held down the throttle as I could see my truck slowly moving. Just as I was about to give up, my truck LAUNCHES forward and I even get a bit of air as it goes back out of the ditch, smashes through a sign and lands on the road. 2% damage, got my trailer back, was able to complete the job, walked away feeling boss time for some more jobs, I'm avoiding a loan for now as I want to earn the cash first. Buy myself a truck and get the garage sorted.

    How have you guys gone about starting up? Any tips? I'd obviously like to employ some people eventually..
    Try not to get a loan. Do quick jobs to get money up for truck.

    Make sure you sort your jobs by price...

    Get a volvo truck. Much better and more power than scana truck at base model.

    Have done, unfortunately it's all only around the £3k mark (I have only just started mind, Level 2 here haha..) - yeah I was reading up on that, Volvo seems the best and with the upgrades they go up to 750bhp or something mad!

    UK always messes me up. I drive in Europe almost all the time and try to actively miss the UK runs. But the companies offer large amounts for me to take things from the far east of Europe to the limits of the UK (Cardiff, Manchester, etc)

    I like doing Aberdeen to anywhere in scotland. Its a good road to test your skills especially with the traffic mod.

    I am UK based with a right-hand truck for maximum hilarity. Got to guess KPH speed, remember to drive on the right and considering removing the left HUD mirror for more difficulty.
